    Please help me downgrade my phone. I really wouldn't have purchased this phone a couple months ago if I knew it was going to look like this. I hate EMUI 5.0. I respect that others like it but please just help me get my phone back.

    The instructions are on the support site.

    Downgrade package and then apply the package for 4.

    Pretty simple process.

    If you have FDR-L04 which is the 32gb version, then you can from their site.

    If you have FDR-L14, Honor doesn't have the firmware in their site. Please talk to the support.

    Thank you so much as I have found the link to 4.1 on their support site. I am a noob to this though. I am downloading the 1.6gb package right now to my chromebook, but how do I go about applying that to my phone?

    I didn't like the look of the notification icons in the top right in addition look of the notification shade. Everything seems to have changed in a way that looks foreign and horrifying for me but I am very sensitive to changes.

    I found the download but not the instructions. Any chance you can point me to what I do after downloading?

    Unzip the file and instructions are in there if you downloaded the rollback.

    It's possible but I would proceed with caution if I was you. Trying to do that with the US 32gb model broke my phone but fortunately Huawei/Honor is fixing it.

    So your mileage may vary, good luck either way.

    I can't recommend trying to rollback. Here's my message from another thread: Rolling back to EMUI 4.1, my sour experience

    I tried to roll back from Emui 5 to Emui 4.1 last monday, following the official guide to the letter. All went okay until the last step, after trying to install the 4.1 ended up with my phone in boot loop, it wouldn't run the os, but didn't stay powered off either.

    Managed to enter eRecovery mode, and the phone told me "data partition was damaged seriously!". It offered to download a recovery file, but couldn't establish wifi connection. I took it to a shop, and few days later received a whole new phone.

    Super lucky that this replacement is "old" enough to still have Emui 4.1, now I'm doing everything in my power so it doesn't update to Emui 5, not anytime soon anyway.

    Yeah. Rollback from 5 to 4.1? Don't freaking do it.

    I'd say stick with it in order to get Nougat's enhancements e.g. split screen and better quick shortcuts. And then install Nova Launcher Prime for a vastly superior front end with gestures and granular control over your homescreen. If you use widgets then those giant EMUI icons just take up too much space - as on iOS. (Wonder were they designed for the visually challenged?)
